Basic income eligibility guidelines are 125% of the federal poverty level -- currently $26,500 a year for a family of 4.  But we can often go considerably above that depending on the type of case.  To check on your eligibility or for more information on getting help, call our central number, 347-592-2200. QLS provides legal advice and representation to thousands of people every year, but, resources are limited so QLS cannot guarantee that we can help every eligible person.
